CYCLE OF TALKS "LET'S HAVE A DRINK WITH SCIENCE: New technologies and digitization in the agri-food sector

Sobre l'activitat

The digitization of agriculture is the ally to respond to the challenges of poverty, food supply and sustainability and the use of resources. However, the degree of ICT implementation in the sector is very low or slower than one might expect. In this session, we will discover how agriculture has transformed in the last thirty years, what is the degree of implementation of digital tools such as big data, blockchain, sensors or artificial intelligence, and what challenges . in the future we face to require the digital gap in this sector.
